Chateau Musar is Lebanon’s most famous winery and family member Ralph Hochar will host a tasting of the winery that his grandfather, Gaston Hochard, founded in 1930.
These are interesting wines made with an unconventional twist on the Bordeaux grape theme; many are blended with Cinsault, which traditionally originates in another region in the sunny South of France – the vast Languedoc region.
Chateau Musar wines are available for purchase in store at Regional Wines but we will taste a wider range than we usually carry on Tuesday 5 September.
